Compost Art Reflection: I watched as layers and layers of egg shells, coffee grinds, vegetable peels and apple cores get tossed into the compost bin. The more we add in, the more beautiful it gets, layer by layer, piece by piece. Individual pieces of everything all getting thrown away all break down, until one day, it turns into something beautiful and useful together. Everything that was meant to be useless, broken, and tossed into a waste basket eventually turns into something fruitful for all the earth. It reminds me of the world we live in…no one is perfect, yet when everyone works collaboratively, earth becomes a richer place. All this inspired me to create this page of compost art…and remind me of how beautiful nature is!View More Earth Day Compost Art

How often do you stop and truly PLAY with your child(ten)? I encourage you to stop what you are doing at least once this month to just play! You will see your kids’ face light up, like never before. You, their parent who is usually working or cooking, cleaning or folding; it’s the most intriguing and endearing thing to them to see you laugh, be creative and play like a kid ! You are their role model. You are the person your child looks up to; their first teacher; their inspiration. What are you telling/ showing your child when you stop what you’re doing to play with them ? How does that make them feel? How does that make you feel?View More LEGO Play!
Why kids do so much art? Why is art important in early childhood and beyond?
The more you art, the more you start to realize art is embedded in our lives and shares bits and pieces of who we are as unique, one of a kind individuals.
Art is about developing yourself. It’s taking baby steps to try new things and trying to understand things other people create and respecting their point of view.
Art is you and you are one of a kind. You are special because there is no one like you.
Life is about sharing who you are to the world, and finding not IF we connect, but HOW, WHERE and WHY we connect.View More Art tells us it’s Okay to be You
